UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center researchers examine role of diet and exercise
An active lifestyle and a healthy diet can help you feel more energetic, control your weight, help you sleep better, and reduce your risk of many diseases. Researchers at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center are interested in discovering the effects of innovative diet and exercise programs on breast cancer survivors, as well as women who are ‘at risk’ for breast cancer.
“It’s like anything else in life; you have to really want it (weight loss),” said participant Lorri Maida, who is enrolled in the Healthy Eeating & Living Program (HELP) Study. “Portion control, phone counseling and some kind of daily exercise are really working for me.”
